With the transfer window now open and in full swing, activity is frenetic throughout world football.

Here, we take a look at some of the latest done deals over the past 24 hours.

MATTHIAS GINTER

Borussia Dortmund to Borussia M’gladbach €17m (Dh70.8m)

The defender stood out by helping Germany win the Confederations Cup, but believes his best chance of featuring in the 2018 World Cup is guaranteed first-team football at Monchengladbach. At 23 years old, he represents something of a steal.

LUIZ GUSTAVO

Wolfsburg to Marseille €8m (Dh33.3m)

After a decade in Germany, the tough-tackling midfielder heads west to Marseille. He joins a team who finished fifth in Ligue 1, though his new employers will hope he cuts down on his red cards – he picked up his eighth last season to match the Bundesliga record.

ADAM OUNAS

Bordeaux to Napoli €10m (Dh41.7m)

Ounas was linked to Manchester United in April but instead the Algerian winger will move to Serie A. The 20-year-old will be an able understudy to Jose Callejon, as he is equally adept at playing on the right as he is on the left. A small price to pay for huge potential.

TOM INCE

Derby to Huddersfield £11m (Dh52.2m)

Ince, son of former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul, has been handed a second shot at the Premier League by new boys Huddersfield. Still only 25, the forward was a force with Derby in the Championship but failed with Hull in the EPL in 2014/15.

FLORIAN LEJEUNE

Eibar to Newcastle £8.7m (Dh41.3m)

The 26-year-old spent one season in La Liga with Eibar and helped them to an impressive 10th place. “He has progressed a lot as a player in the last few years and he will give us something different at the back,” said Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez.
